    Lightroom 6.7 Crashes

    Cattaraugus Level 1

      I have stand-alone Lightroom 6.7.  HP Pavilion 64 Bit; 6GB DDR3 memory; Windows 10 Home; AMD Radeon HD 7560D graphics; AMD Quad-Core A8-5500 processor.  Lightroom 6.7 works normally but crashes when:


      1.  Selecting Library from Develop.  If I switch from Library to Develop without editing any photos, LR does not crash.  But if I edit or export a photo, the next time I switch from Library/Develop/Library I get a black bars in the lower corners and directly under Library | Develop.  If I click the black bars, I get the shutdown box.  Click anywhere else and I get a white screen and can shut down using the X in the upper right corner.


      2.  After editing 4 or 5 photos in Develop, eventually clicking anything results in a black screen, again with the X to shut down the program.


      I've reinstalled Lightroom 6 and updated to 6.7, with no change in the crashing.


      Any suggestions how to fix it?

          Hello - since you mentioned that you reinstalled Lightroom 6 and then the patch to 6.7 again, did you also try installing the patch for 6.6.1 instead (ie., the previous version)? Might be worth a try to see if Lightroom 6.6.1 also crashes under these circumstances.


          I'm mentioning this because I reverted to LR 6.6.1 from 6.7 - not because of any crashes, but because LR 6.7 appeared to be much slower on my computer; thus I'm inclined to think that something more than what we're seeing in the changelogs has changed, internally, which affects operation in 6.7 versus previous versions.

            HI Cattaraugus,


            Have you tried unchecking "Use Graphics Processor" in Preferences>>Performance. Refer Adobe Lightroom GPU Troubleshooting and FAQ


            Let us know if that helps.

              Thank you for the suggestion, but unfortunately it did not work.

                Thank you for the suggestion, but it did not work, but led me to a solution.  After reading more in the forum and the  various blogs, etc., it is plain that the problem is between LR and AMD graphics drivers.  So I decided to reinstall my graphic drivers and update if required.  It turns out that AMD considers my HD 7560D to be "legacy" now (since Feb 2016 - about the same time I quit developing photos for a while).  But AMD does offer a Beta version of a final driver and so I loaded that, reinstalled LR 6 (but did not update, and everything seems to work.
